Monday: Miguel Pupo (BRA), 20, led his fellow ASP WCT competitors by staying busy in his opening heat and relied on his refined aerial tactics to earn some of the day’s top scores. The Brazilian goofy footer launched one of the highest single-wave scores including a near-perfect 9.07 en route to the round’s high heat-total of 18.07 out of 20.

“I knew the waves were kind of slow and there was a long wait in between sets so I was getting everything I could,” Pupo said. “I was looking for the airs because, coming from Brazil, you learn how to get good scores in these types of waves.”


Tonight! Dont miss Surfer the Bar's Talk Story featuring true Hawaiian surfing Legend: Clyde Aikau

Clyde Aikau permeates surfing lore on all levels: Hawaiian surf royal, pro competitor, and Waimea big wave waterman. He spent years pulling surfers and tourists from Poseidon’s deadly clutches as a Waimea lifeguard. The Hawaiian regular footer was named a “Waikiki Surfing Legend” by the Duke Kahanamoku Foundation. Like his brother Eddie, he served as crew member on the Hokulea, a replica of the original Polynesian sailing canoe that made the journey from Tahiti to Hawaii. He won (and placed highly) in some of pro surfing’s most historic events and was even ranked as high as 12th on the World Championship Tour in 1976. And, of course, Clyde Aikau is member of one of Hawaii’s most legendary surfing families. Surfer the Bar DROP IN HERE
